First look at OSX Yosemite

Today I had pleasure to install new beta of the OSX Yosemite OS. After signing in to beta program I’ve downloaded and installed the new version of this OS. It looks different from previous version but in my opinion it looks better. Trust me, dark mode really do the job 馃檪 Below are some screenshots of my desktop. There is no dock. I’m prepering some more when I’ll be ready to do some review. One day is not enough to judge.

My first Mac

Few months ago I bought my first mac. This is a MacBook Pro 15” with 512GB of HDD and 16GB of memory. Processor is Intel 2.3GHz. I choose this hardware because of my work. Mainly I’m a web developer which has to deal with strong usage of several hardware consuming services. Before this computer I had Samsumg laptop with similar configuration and that was ok for me. So i thought that this device will meet my needs.

After using it for couple of months now I can say that this is the best computer I’ve ever had. Not only because of the hardware but software too. I’m talking about OSX mainly. The system itself is very user friendly. Small things make this OS great, like notifications, touchpad gestures and so on. Some of the third party applications that are prepered for this OS are not only beutiful but usefull too. For the first time managing passwords with 1password was a pleasure for me. I’m using Evernote for a long time now and for the first time it looks good. I can go through all of my applications that I’m using but this is not the case. Before I聽choose an application I’m trying serveral of them in that specyfic area. This is my way of selecting solutions for my daily work. So every application on my computer i selected with patients. And on Mac I’m always getting proper app, which looks just beautiful.

Before OSX I’ve been using Debian with Xmodan as Window Manager. This was a great experience, mainly because of stability. I’m not done with that configuration – I have Debian or Ubuntu on my test and production servers. I’ve needed solution for my work station. It’s nice to launch applications with keybord and to have this open source environment, but after some time I’ve decided to move to more useful platform, where I can have tools ready to speed up my work out-of-the box. In Mac with OSX I have that.

Vampire stars

The universe is a diverse place, and many stars are quite unlike the Sun. An international team has used the VLT to study what are known as O-type stars, which have very high temperature, mass, and brightness. These stars have short and violent lives and play a key role in the evolution of galaxies. They are also linked to extreme phenomena such as gamma-ray bursts and “vampire stars,” where a smaller companion star sucks matter off the surface of its larger neighbor.

Firefox 5

Grooveshark podkusi艂 mnie dzisiaj do 艣ci膮gni臋cia nowego Firefoxa. W Chrome psu艂o mi si臋 ostatnio co艣 z d藕wi臋kiem, a 偶e przed weekendem nie bardzo mam czas usi膮艣膰 do grzebania w systemie pomy艣la艂em, 偶e spr贸buj臋 na nowym lisku. Wbrew moim oczekiwaniom Firefox poprawnie odgrywa mi muzyk臋. +1 Firefox 馃槈

Kilka ciekawych zmian jakie zauwa偶y艂em w nowej wersji przegl膮darki Mozilli to przede wszystkim skok w wersjach, czy przypadkiem nie tak dawno nie wysz艂a czw贸rka? Jak poukrywa si臋 wszystkie paski i zostawi tylko karty i adresu to nowy wygl膮d jest ca艂kiem do zaakceptowania. Przyk艂adowe zrzuty ekran贸w w stronie mozilli s膮 robione na jakim艣 Linuchu – jestem pewien 馃槈 No i przede wszystkim szybko艣膰. Wreszcie Firefox zaczyna by膰 przegl膮dark膮, kt贸ra nie odstaje tak strasznie od pr臋dko艣ciowego mainstreamu.

Taki obr贸t spraw mnie bardzo cieszy, nie ze wzgl臋du, na to, 偶e b臋d臋 m贸g艂 znowu wr贸ci膰 do Firefoxa. Nadszarpn膮艂 zbytnio moje zaufanie. Dlatego mnie to cieszy, 偶e interfejsy b臋d膮 mog艂y by膰 lepsze, bardziej wymagaj膮ce, poniewa偶 kolejna niedomagaj膮ca przegl膮darka wzi臋艂a si臋 do roboty i “rzeczy” na ekranie zaczynaj膮 i w niej pojawia膰 si臋 szybko. Bardzo dobrze, bardzo dobrze…
